Hair Styling Tools - Remington - T-Studio Pearl Curling Wand

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Jan/01/2017

I really like this curling wand. It's much easier to get a tousled, wavy look with this than a traditional curling iron. The cone shape gives a more natural look to the curl (bigger/looser at the bottom), so it's not for someone who wants precise ringlets.

It heats up very quickly and feels light so my arms don't get tired while doing my whole head. The curls/waves I get …

Styling Products - Bumble and bumble - Spray De Mode

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Jan/01/2017

I got a travel-sized can of this because the Elnett that was sitting in my bathroom is too powerfully perfumed. Compared to that, Spray De Mode's fragrance is inoffensive.

I used this to set a hairstyle for New Year's. I sectioned my hair, sprayed each section with this (a nice fine mist), then curled with a curling wand. I let my hair cool, then combed out the curls to get …

Lip Liners - Sephora Collection - Lip Liner to Go

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Jan/01/2017

I don't usually wear lip liner but wanted one to wear underneath a glossier lip color to keep it in place. This was relatively cheap at $6 (and I prefer having less pencil so it won't take me years to use it up).

This is richly pigmented but glides on smoothly. It doesn't feel dry and hard like lip liners I've tried in the past. It actually looks and performs more …

Lips - REVLON - Just Bitten Kissable Stain Balm - Crush

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Jan/01/2017

"Crush" is a gorgeous deep berry red on me, very flattering if you've got yellow or olive tones in your complexion. I also have naturally pigmented lips, which may be why this color remains true on me instead of turning hot pink or fuchsia. It applies with a slight glossy sheen, but the color remains after the gloss wears away. The color also wears off evenly so you don't end …Read more

Lipstick - REVLON - Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain - Honey

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Jan/01/2017

"Honey" is the closest MLBB color I've come across yet. It's a neutral, slightly mauvey rosy pink, not too pale for my pigmented lips but only a shade or so darker than my natural lip color. If you've found most recommended MLBB colors to be too pale, gray or brown on you, then you'll probably like Honey.

This applies like a satin lipstick with a slight …

Moisturizers - COSRX - Advanced Snail 92 All in One Cream

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Sep/25/2016

This is my first snail product and so far, I really like it. It's a lightweight gel cream that feels very soothing and hydrating to thirsty skin. It's the perfect light moisturizer to put on top of essences and serums in hot and humid weather when the thought of a normal cream feels unbearable. It also layers nicely under heavier products. Since it has dimethicone as an ingredient, I …Read more

Treatments (Face) - Paula's Choice - 10% Niacinamide Booster

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Sep/25/2016

I just finished up my bottle. I had high hopes for this product due to the very high percentage of niacinamide in it as well as PC's reputation as a brand. Most serums have 2 or 3% niacinamide, but this booster has 10%. Unfortunately, this didn't live up to expectations.

This is a watery serum/additive that you can apply to bare skin or mix with other products. When I say …

Misc Beauty Tools - Real Techniques - Miracle Complexion Sponge

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Sep/25/2016

I had a Beauty Blender that I liked a lot, but it was starting to fall apart and I wanted to check out some other options before plunking down another 20 bucks for a new one. This sponge by RT has been highly touted for a long time and is inexpensive and easy to source (got mine at Target).

The shape is better than the BB's egg because there's an edge that can get into …

Misc Beauty Tools - Unlisted Brand - Konjac Sponge

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Sep/24/2016

I bought a lemon konjac sponge from TJ Maxx purely out of curiosity. I use Tazorac, AHA, and BHA so it's not like I need a lot of exfoliation. When I want a physical exfoliator, I use a gommage or an enzyme exfoliating powder (like Dermalogica's Daily Microfoliant). I've read so much about konjacs that I had to give one a try, especially since they are inexpensive.

I …

Styling Products - Living Proof - Prime Style Extender

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Sep/24/2016

Prime Style Extender does what I wanted Bumble & Bumble's Don't Blow It (which I've also reviewed) to do for me: allow me to air dry my hair without it ending up a lifeless, frizzed-out mess.

I have very long, mostly straight hair of medium thickness with a slight wave. I don't like fussing with it and prefer air-drying because I'm lazy and it's far …
